QUORAN AND BIBLE ARE NOT TRUE VEDAS


 


-Acharya Narendra Bhooshan


 






            Acharya Narendra Bhooshan (67) has dedicated his life for the study and propagation of the Vedas. As a young college student he was attracted to the work of Swami Vivekananda’s writings on the Vedas. Young Narendran travelled to the North to meet his Guru, Dr. Gayanchand of Lahore and later continued his studies at Brahma Mahavidyalaya, Hissar, Haryana. After his Vedic education he returned to his native state of Kerala and started propagating the essence of Vedas through his writings. Author of 20 books in Malayalam and Sanskrit he had completed his magnum opus- CHATURVEDA  SAMHITAa complete set of the four Vedas (Rig, Yajur, Sama and Athrva) in Malayalam with Rishi, Devata and Chandas in an exhaustive study with commentary on some of the main Mantras, Suktas and history of Vedic literature. This is a unique work as it is the only one of its kind in any language other than Sanskrit ever published in the world. He was awarded the first AMRITA  KEERTHI puraskar instituted by the Mata Amritanandamayi Ashram for outstanding contribution made in the field of Indian Philosophy and Social Service done with a spiritual base. He has written more than 400 articles on different aspects of Vedas and Upanishads in leading periodicals. Around 500 students from different parts of the globe are studying the Vedas under him.


            As an ardent supporter of the Ayodhya movement, he has written the book ‘Ayodyayile Sree Raman’ (Sree Ram of Ayodhya) based on the origin and growth of Ramayanas in different languages and countries. He has also translated the Geeta Rahasyam of Balagangadhara Tilak to Malayalam. He is the Kulapathi of the Maharshi Dayanand Vaidika Gurukulam. established by him at Vaikom, which imparts Vedic knowledge to the people irrespective of caste, creed, colour or religion and is publishing the magazine Arshanadam in Malayalam exclusive devoted to the teaching of Vedas and related topics since 1970. Many non-Hindus in large numbers attracted by his teaching have embraced Hinduism. Excerpts from an exclusive interview with Pradeep Ramakrishnan, special correspondent, Haindava Keralam:


 


1.         What prompted you to study the Vedas?


            During my college days, I was very much attracted towards Communism. I got a copy of the complete works of Swami Vivekananda from my aunt and reading the works of Swamiji changed my life. Swamiji had high opinion about Vedas. So I wanted to study the Vedas and experience what is described in the Vedas.


2.         It is often alleged that the Vedas contain only outdated rituals and superstitions and mankind has nothing to benefit from it?


            Those who oppose Vedas have not studied a bit of it. The Vedas contain scientific discoveries. Those who say that Vedas are not scientific have to prove it. What is the use of simply repeating a lie? We need in depth studies to understand the hidden meaning of the Vedas. Unfortunately, many of the rituals are done without knowing the truth behind it.


 


3.         Modern man is very busy and he has no time to perform the elaborate rituals. What is the use of Vedas to the modern man?


            I do not agree with your contention that we have no time. We have time for everything except for the study of Vedas? Even for preserving our ecology and environment study of Vedas are very helpful. If one is serious and sincere, study of Vedas can be done together with any other occupation.


 


4.         Jyothisa forms part of the Vedas. There was a controversy when UGC decided to start classes in Jyothisa ?


            It is really absurd to raise such controversies. Indians have predicted clearly many of the astronomical values through Jyothisa. Moreover what is wrong in studying a subject? Jyothisa is related to man’s interest in the unknown. Till this interest lasts, Jyothisa will have its value. We have to approach it without any prejudice.


 


5.         It is often said that only a Brahmin can study Vedas? Is it true that Vedas themselves prohibit non-Brahmins from studying it?


            It is absurd to say so. Who is a Brahmin? According to Vedas, nobody becomes a Brahmin by birth alone. Every body should learn Vedas irrespective of caste, creed or colour. Even ladies are not prohibited from learning Vedas. Our caste system was based purely on the principle of division of labour. Unfortunately it got distorted later. Such distortions happen in every society. See the sad plight of Communists, who always claimed that once their rule is established, there would not be any caste, creed, color, etc. In all the erstwhile Communists States people are in conflict over caste, color and creed and all their ‘scientific’ theories could not prevent the demolition of USSR.


 


6.         The land of Vedas-Bharath-is confronted with several internal and external problems. Do you foresee a glorious future for India?


            India will definitely have a glorious future. Unfortunately, since independence we did not give any importance to the study of Sanskrit. In the West people long to learn Ayurveda, Sanskrit, Yoga, etc. All these are positive signs. Our spiritual organizations are also doing wonderful service all over the world. So I am optimistic that India is poised to be the world leader.


 


7.         There was a thesis by a Left scholar that the Vedic people ate meat, especially beef. How do you view this?


            This is not scholarship at all. This is sheer perversion of truth. Those who have not studied Sanskrit in-depth cannot interpret the meaning of many hymns of Vedas correctly. The hidden meaning of many verses should not be misinterpreted to degrade the Vedas. I really feel pity for these so-called scholars.


 


8.                  Recently there is a tendency to equate the Vedas with the scriptures of other religions such as the Bible and the Quran. How do you view this?


There are many sentences in the Bible & Quran quoted from the Vedas, because Vedas are divine knowledge, human authorless and revealed through the Rihis or holy men of God in the beginning of the creation. Like wise Quoran also depicts on the divine origin of it and the compilation of it  by conveying Ayat by Ayat (sentence by sentence) through Jibrael the pharista to the prophet. Quoran and Bible are not true Vedas as its followers claim but they  are incompetent  primitive translations of some Brahmana scriptures which contains some Vedic hymns and its  commentary.


 


9.            Many Christian preachers often argue that the arrival of Jesus Christ is predicted in the scriptures of Hindus. They say that Bhavishya purana contains references to the arrival Jesus. Is this is true?


None of the Hindu scriptures predicts the arrival of Christ. Authoritative scriptures are those which commensurate the teachings of the four Vedas. Others are not accepted as quotable authority. For the sake of argument let us accept this resurrection or reincarnation theory. Will the Christ land in a Christian dominated area? No, he will not, because everywhere crosses are erected, and seeing this Christ may disappear into heaven to avoid another crucification, on one of these ready made crosses. He do not know his followers are adoring it instead of him.


 


10.        The word Hindu has become anathema to many of our so-called secularists. They even argue that none of the Hindu scriptures or texts refers Bharatvasis as Hindus? What are your views?


Hindu is not a term or word in any of the Hindu scriptures or Itihasa (History) when the word is absent, why to seek its meaning? Hindu is derived from Sanskrit word Sindhu in Arabic and they call Hindus those who settled at the shores and deltas of river Sindhu. The Arabic dictionary gives it’s meaning as barbarous folk. The original names of the followers of Vedas and related scriptures are Sanatana Dharma and Vedic Dharma. Arya means virtuous and Dasyu means mean person having no virtues. Hindus means Bharatheeyas and why should one be ashamed to call oneself a Hindu.


 


11.        It is felt that the Hindus of Kerala are under severe threat, economically, politically and culturally, not only from other religions but from politicians too. What are the ways to safeguard and protect the glorious tradition of Hindus of Kerala?


There are no easy ways to achieve these aims. Social and financial condition of the Hindus in Kerala is pathetic. Culturally also it is the condition. At present Hindus in Kerala have no priest to lead any ceremony like Birth, Namkaran, Annprasana, Choodakarma, initiation to letters, and knowledge, marriage and funeral. No other community in the world might have such a social experience. Blind beliefs and witchcraft are curses on them. Astrologers are tricky towards them. Every temple should have assemblies of different age groups and able and educated pandits should give them proper information on different subjects related to religion, such as god, soul, creation, life karmas, karma philosophy, life after death, salvation, advaita, dwaita, tirtha, visishtadvaita Christianity Islam, Budhism, Jainism, Tantric cult etc. Every Hindu should possess average knowledge at least on these topics. Temples, worship, utsavas etc, also should form part of this syllabus.  If this can be implemented, then we shall see what a change comes to the day to day life of a Hindu family.


 


12.        What is your advise to the viewers of Haindava Keralam? (With regards to safeguarding and protecting our age old and glorious culture).


Our age old glorious culture is dooming. Sarpakavus are being converted to Rubber plantations. We must pledge to protect and preserve our glorious tradition and culture for the benefit of the whole world.  Visitors to Haindava Keralam must strive their best to understand, study and disseminate different aspects of our glorious Hindu culture.

    Communists,atheists and semitic religionists have played a major role in deliberately undermining our religion and religious practices,and the ignorant/gullible amongst us have helped unwittingly to spread untruths about our own religion. It would be a good idea if enlightened people like Acharya Narendra Bhooshan could give weekly discourses to attract Hindus and others to learn the truth about the Vedas and Upanishads.This would be a great service to our society. 5

    pl forward me email,address and tel no of Acharya Narendra Bhooshan. I admire his dedication of Vedic study and propogation of Vedas.I would like to make one correction.Vishnu Purana mentioned Hindu as resident of Bharat.even parsee holy book, Zed Avesta( which is 10,ooo yrs old book and oldeer than Old Testament) mention word Hindav as people who live east of Persia.( include Afghanistan)then Sindu become east river.Sindhu become Hindu is a simplistic interpretation which unfortunately many schoalrs like swami Dayananda,Veer Savarkar etc acceptedbecause they were not aware of study of Zed Avesta.ther eis a scholarly articleof linguistic studyof Zeb,Hebrew and Latinwhich mention this fact.

    Re: QUORAN AND BIBLE ARE NOT TRUE VEDAS
    The Indus Valley (Harappan) civilization, which is the oldest historically known culture in ancient India, was contemporary with the Proto-Elamite and Elamite civlizations in ancient Iran. The Indus people had trade links with parts of Afghanistan, the coastal regions of Iran, and the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia. At Susa in the western part of Iran, decorated pottery has been excavated which appears to be similar to those of the Kulli culture in the north-west of the Indian subcontinent. Indus seals have also been excavated at Kish, Sura and Ur. The Harappan culture in India is believed to have imported silver, copper, turquoise and lapis lazuli from Persia and Afghanistan, in return for ivory. In terms of linguistics, it has been theorized that the Indus people spoke a Dravidian language, and this language or its variants must have also spread to neighbouring areas: in the Balochistan region in the southeast of Iran and in the southwest of Pakistan, the Brahui people speak a language that is classified under the Dravidian family. The Elamo-Dravidian languages is a hypothetical language family that includes the ancient Elamite language of Iran and the Dravidian languages of the Indian subcontinent, suggesting a possible linguistic relationship between the Elamites and Harappans before the arrival of Indo-Iranians.

    The languages of India belonging to the Indo-Aryan family are believed to have originated from the same source as the Iranian languages, namely the Indo-Iranian language family, which in itself is a member of the Satem group of Indo-European languages. The Indo-Iranians were nomadic people originating from the Central Asian steppes, probably in the region of the Oxus river valley, pre-2000 BCE. They referred to themselves as Aryans, from which the word “Iran” originates (from airyanam vaejo meaning “Land of the Aryans”), and also the word Arya in Sanskrit and other Indian languages, signifying “noble”. Ancient India was also referred to as aryavarta, which means the same as “kingdom/domain of the Aryans”.

    Aryan civilization first entered the north-west of India probably around 2000 BCE. The Aryans brought with them the patrilinear system, the worship of sky gods and the use of horses and the chariot. Vedic civilization began in India around 1500 BC, with the Rigveda being the oldest of the Vedas. The Rigveda was told in Vedic Sanskrit, which is very similar to Avestan, the ancient language in which the Persian Zoroastrian sacred text Avesta was written. The Vedas and the Avesta appear to agree that the Aryans migrated from their original homeland due to a “flood” of some kind. In the Vedic account, the flood was of water, while the Avesta indicates that it was of snow and frost. The survivor of this flood, Manu Satyavrata is considered to be the progenitor of the Aryans in India, according to Vedic scripture. The story has obvious parallels with the Semitic account of the Great Flood and the emergence of Noah. According to the traditions of the Vendidad, Aryans lived in fifteen nations, one of these being Haptahindu, which is the Avestan form of the Sanskrit Saptasindhu, meaning “seven rivers” and referring to the region of the Indian subcontinent.Ancient Vedic religion and Zoroastrianism also have much else in common. The Vedas and the Gathas of the Avesta include the performance of sacrifice (Sanskrit yajna or Avestan yasna) and the importance of priests or Magi. The myths that appear in the Yasht part of the Avesta probably have their roots in ancient Indo-Iranian culture.
    Vedic Sanskrit is an ancient Indian language, the language of the Vedas, the oldest shruti texts of Hinduism. It is an archaic form of Sanskrit, an early descendant of Proto-Indo-Iranian, attested during the period between roughly 1700 BCE (early Rigveda) and 600 BCE (Sutra language), and still comparatively similar (being removed by maybe 1500 years) to the Proto-Indo-European language. It is closely related to Avestan, the oldest preserved Iranian language. Vedic Sanskrit is the oldest attested language of the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European family.

    From ca. 600 BC, in the classical period of Iron Age Ancient India, Vedic Sanskrit gave way to Classical Sanskrit as defined by the grammar of Panini.
    Five chronologically distinct strata can be identified within the Vedic language (Witzel 1989).

    ?gvedic. The ?gveda retains many common Indo-Iranian elements, both in language and in content, that are not present in any other Vedic texts. Its creation must have taken place over several centuries, and apart from the youngest books (1 and 10), it must have been essentially complete by 1200 BCE.
    Mantra language. This period includes both the mantra and prose language of the Atharvaveda (Paippalada and Shaunakiya), the Rigveda Khilani, the Samaveda Samhita (containing some 75 mantras not in the Rigveda), and the mantras of the Yajurveda. These texts are largely derived from the Rigveda, but have undergone certain changes, both by linguistic change and by reinterpretation. Conspicuous changes include change of visva “all” to sarva, and the spread of kuru- (for Rigvedic k?no-) as the present tense form of the verb kar- “make, do”. This period corresponds to the early Iron Age in north-western India (iron is first mentioned in the Atharvaveda), and to the kingdom of the Kurus, dating from about the 12th century BC.
    Samhita prose (roughly 1100 BC to 800 BC). This period marks the beginning collection and codification of a Vedic canon. An important linguistic change is the complete loss of the injunctive and of the modi of the aorist. The commentary part of the Black Yajurveda (MS, KS) belongs to this period.
    Brahmana prose (roughly 900 BC to 600 BC). The Brahmanas proper of the four Vedas belong to this period, as well as the Aranyakas (Ara?yakas) oldest of the Upanishads (BAU, ChU, JUB).
    Sutra language. This is the last stratum of vedic Sanskrit leading up to 500 BC, comprising the bulk of the Shrauta and Grhya Sutras, and some Upanishads (E.g. KathU, MaitrU. Younger Upanishads are post-Vedic).
    Around 500 BC, cultural, political and linguistic factors all contribute to the end of the Vedic period. The codification of Vedic ritual reached its peak, and counter movements such as the Vedanta and early Buddhism emerged, using the vernacular Pali, a Prakrit dialect, rather than Sanskrit for their texts. Darius I of Persia invaded the Indus valley and the political center of the Indo-Aryan kingdoms shifted Eastward, to the Gangetic plain. Around this time (5th century BC), Panini fixes the grammar of Classical Sanskrit.
    Separation of Indo-Aryans proper from Proto-Indo-Iranians is commonly dated, on linguistic grounds, to roughly 2000 BC.[citation needed] The Nuristani languages probably split in such early times, and are classified as either remote Indo-Aryan dialects or as an independent branch of Indo-Iranian. It is believed that by 1500 BC Indo-Aryans had reached Assyria in the west (the Mitanni) and northern Afghanistan in the east (the Rigvedic tribes).

    The spread of Indo-Aryan languages has been connected with the spread of the chariot in the first half of the second millennium BC. Some scholars trace the Indo-Iranians (both Indo-Aryans and Iranians) back to the Andronovo culture (2nd millennium BC). Other scholars like Brentjes (1981), Klejn (1974), Francfort (1989), Lyonnet (1993), Hiebert (1998) and Sarianidi (1993) have argued that the Andronovo culture cannot be associated with the Indo-Aryans of India or with the Mitanni because the Andronovo culture took shape too late and because no actual traces of their culture (e.g. warrior burials or timber-frame materials of the Andronovo culture) have been found in India or Mesopotamia (Edwin Bryant. 2001). The archaeologist J.P. Mallory (1998) finds it “extraordinarily difficult to make a case for expansions from this northern region

    Many of the hindus do not know anything about their own scriptures. Christians all know about Bible and muslims may all know about Koran. But hindus shamelessly agree that they do not know anything about vedas. It is a disgrace. They should know something about vedas, upanishads, puranas, ithihasa etc. They are all our cultural treasure. They have survived many millenia of existence and are more relevant to the modern age. We should be proud of them. 5

    It was indeed a pleasure to read about Acharya and his work dedicated towards the spread of Vedic teachings. But I would like to comment on the reference to Bhavishya MahaPurana citing Jesus in India. As far as I am aware, there is a mention of Jesus coming to India (kashmir to be precise) where He spends the rest of his life till death. A brief encounter with King Shalivahanam, grandson of Vikramaditya is also documented. This is in accordance with the Tomb of Jesus theory that is widely debunked, but highly plausible. Thanks 5

    Semitic Religions say that the contents and believes of their own book are the only truth in the universe. Many old invaders even destroyed libraries and cultural centres in many contries due to their exclusivism that the knowledge other than their some particular books give are utter nonsense.Torching of Alexandrian Library and Nalanda university are good examples.
    They fight each other and at the same time they call the ethnic religion belivers as heathens. But India, where Vedic Dharma survived over all attacks could accept anyone came here as their own mother. So we call her Bharat Matha. No reason for this other than virtues of Vedas.

    Pranams to the great author.
    However, he is not the first to translate the four Vedas to Malayalam. It is Shri V. Balakrishnan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V._Balakrishnan_(author))and R. Leela Devi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leela_Devi) who never went after awards and acclaim in their ‘Karma Yoga’. He has also published the first “Hindu Encyclopedia” even before Pandit Narendra Bhooshanji has released one. Such people who have translated most of the important Vedic texts without profit / fame motives are being forgotten by all. 5

It is an insult to Ved to compare it with these anti-humanity , intolerent and unscientific books of war.All western scholars except phony leftists accept it gracefully.

    What are you trying to say here? Why wasting space by just copy-pasting disputed, unproven and discredited theories/stories like Aryan Invation, Aryan/Dravidian divide? These all are for story-loving old school. These are going to to dust-bins in many places – perhaps, it will be only the ‘Indian Intelligentia and their supporters’ who will try to preserve it for the purpose well known.

It is nothing but a hashing up of the Old Testament and the New Testament along with the complete life history of a warlord who went about Arabia looting, raping and pillaging. This man is referred to in the Koran as Uswa-hasana, al-insan, al-kamil, to be emulated in all respects and deeds, including, but not limited to, dress, beard, torture, murder, rape and paedophilia. We all know the status of any islamic country that does not have oil. Examples of islamic paradises are – Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Yemen, Morocco, Egypt.

    GITA
    One of the greatest contributions of India to the world is Holy Gita which is considered to be one of the first revelations from God. The spiritual philosophy and management lessons in this holy book were brought in to light of the world by many great Indian saint’s effort and they call the Bhagavad-Gita the essence of Vedic Literature and a complete guide to practical life. It provides “all that is needed to raise the consciousness of man to the highest possible level.” Maharishi reveals the deep, universal truths of life that speak to the needs and aspirations of everyone. Your followers in your establishment continuing the mission by keeping this lantern burning always knowing the wishes of the modern generations. Arjuna got mentally depressed when he saw his relatives with whom he has to fight.( Mental health has become a major international public health concern now). To motivate him the Bhagavad-Gita is preached in the battle field Kurukshetra by Lord Krishna to Arjuna as counseling to do his duty while multitudes of men stood by waiting.

Bhagavad-Gita means song of the Spirit, song of the Lord. The Holy Gita has become a secret driving force behind the unfoldment of one’s life. In the days of doubt this divine book will support all spiritual searches. This divine book will contribute to self reflection, finer feeling and deepen one’s inner process.

    Hinduism
    All the teachings, preachings, discoveries and knowledge imparted through Vedas, Upanishads and finally Vedanthas are precious treasures gifted by GOD for the betterment of the environment and the human kind in particular as being the only known creature with developed brains to comprehend ‘sath’ and ‘asath’. Let us impart this knowledge, the way Ramakrishna and Vivekananda had done, to one and all. By doing so let us not talk anything negative or disapproval of Scriptures of religions, either Islam or Christianity as positive thinking and works only bring GOOD and GOD in them. Hence no need for a title like “Quran and Bible are not Vedas”. Kindly do not compare teachings of Vedas with other forms, as Vedas and related scriptures are for all living and non-living things irrespective of cast, creed or religion. On learning, one and all will understand this ‘Thatva’ and will renounce everything else and reach salvation. “Uttishtatha, Jagratha, Prapyavaran Nibodhatha”. 5

    About God and religions
    The Non-Hindu fanatics persuades a common man by confusing him regarding God, they may say God have no image or there is no God in Idols, now lets check this topic,
    Is God with form or formless?
    God is with form and at the same time formless, How?
    Do you believe that God is Complete or Absolute? If God and this world is different how can he be complete? So To be complete god should be Omnipresent. since God is present in everything the objects we see can be considered as the image of God, but the image is not God and God is not without image

    Haindava Keralam
    Pranamji,
    with regard to your comments on rituals in Kerala, in the recent past, Hindus have organised Karasevas through NSS and people trained on rituals are attending to the rituals on intimation particularly during Marriage, engagement function and death ceremonies. Though they are not trained properly, somewhat they are doing the same without any sangham. but these people have to be given further training with its proper meaning which will help the society. My earnest opinion is that in Kerala, most the temples are managed by the Davoswam board and these people are having political patronage, eventhough, they can open a school for studying vedas in every temple premises from where these rituals can be taught and serve the community. thank you. Aravindan
